Mud masking has been around for a very long time and is very beneficial for our skin. Good old-fashioned earth has lots of skin benefits. While in recent times the stuff is bottled and sold and we have, the elementary ingredients intrinsically remain the same—and clay masks have become a huge part of our modern-day beauty routines.

Clay is the star component in so many masks because it absorbs impurities and helps heal your skin. As you may have noticed, clay masks come in a multitude of colors and a multitude of clays—all of which have different specialties. If you aren’t sure which one is the one to address your skin concerns, look no further than this elementary guide to clay.

Bentonite Clay

This is a very popular clay for skin benefits—you probably have spotted this in many of your acne-addressing products. Because of its super absorbing capabilities, this is a great clay for oily skin since it can suck up all that excess sebum easily. Not only that, but it has electric properties that when mixed with water makes the molecules charged and attracts toxins out of your face and to the clay kind of like a magnet. This also goes for any skin ailments involving bacteria and fungus and impurities.

Rhassoul Clay

Unique in that Rhassoul clay is great for both skin and hair, this ancient clay is mined from Morocco and is crazy-rich in minerals. It’s very negatively charged and most toxins in your skin are positively charged, so this clay is the perfect magnet for sopping up all those impurities—sebum plugs, blackheads, and oil around hair follicles.

Fuller’s Earth Clay

This is another powerful absorber of oil and impurities. It has the property to suck all the oils from the skin and makes your skin really supple and oil free. It is popularly known as Multani Mitti and is a staple ingredient in a lot of beauty and skin care products. Not only does it help get rid of dead skin cells, but it also imparts an instant glow onto your face. It does this by getting rid of all the impurities from your skin and by unclogging your pores. This has an added advantage of helping prepare your face to better absorb serums or lotions, boosting their efficiency.
